weaponizing mild annoyance into military-grade indignant outrage
I am an amateur RPG designer and hobbyist with a strong interest in the retro-RPG and NES/SNES era RPG genres. I also happen to be a professional software developer.

I enjoy hockey, video games, reading, writing and playing board games such as Settlers of Catan.

I spend far too much time on RMN, but accomplish nothing of use. I used to be a somebody.

<Clyve> Oh yeah, Kenton you're a somebody again so you should probably modify your profile.
<kentona> so I am

I always wanted to make that game based on everything I enjoyed as a kid. This is the end result.



Site Tips for Newcomers

Can I do that? If I'd known I could do that I wouldn't have bothered with this and gone straight to that instead.
/me goes off to explore and edit shit~

e: holy shit I can do that! :DDD

[RM2K3] Continue project with paid RPG Maker 2003

You can import a game straight into the legal program, in fact, the program itself will convert the file for you. Some things may wind up being broken by the different RTP files, so you'll have to do some bug testing and shit afterwards.
Thanks for the reply. I can also run both versions on my pc?

Yep, you can. I have totally done it several times now.

Okay, last year (I think) we had a big discussion on ways to rate games without writing a review. I CAN'T FIND IT. Halp.

Gamepage User Categories & Makerscore Question

Uh, you can change Other to a custom title when you add a person to the page. Just... type the title you want them to be and choose Other. It even tells you that on the page. It's... yeah, a thing that already exists.
Yeah, I mentioned that in the OP if you care to notice. It was the source of my question/problem, in fact.

The true story is Tester, Developer, Lead, and Other are hardcoded into the site's code and a bunch of logic is based on that. It would be a pain in the ass to revamp that, so I have put it off.

I see. It's unfortunate that Artists and Musicians have to be lumped into "Other", but at least they're getting makerscore for it. That was really the most important thing to me, I was worried that being in Other put you outside of the realm of makerscore gain.

I think that used to be the case, until I changed it back in 2013 (iirc)

What are you thinking about right now?

I am waiting for the day that OTHER industries pick up on the freemium model. And not just videogames and newspaper websites.

"Yes, sir. The soup is free. You can add crackers for $0.50 each. A teaspoon is $1, tablespoon $2, and a deluxe custom soupspoon is $4. You can accessorize your spoon in one of our many different styles and colours and artistic handles, with prices ranging from $0.10 to $2.50"

Is it strange that my knowledge of ruby (and scripting) is inversely proportional to the chance of me finishing *at least* the intro of a game?

so because I never got into scripting at all I should be able to complete MANY GAMES!

oh wait i already did

Hi there \(OuO)/

RMN is like a zombie. It will consume your brains go on forever.


NHL 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs / Pool Prediction Thread

so for me it all comes down to how well the Rangers do. If they beat Tampa, I tie, if they do it in 6 I win, or if they go on to win the cup I win.

Fuck. I don't even like the Rangers. it will be tough cheering for them.
